When Toby Jugg, Measle's nemesis, turns up on the school trip, Measle knows he's in danger. The school trip is supposed to be an adventure and a challenge - and now it is. Toby Jugg shoves Measle into a dark hole - the doompit, a door to all sorts of scary worlds. Measle must escape the jaws of a pack of werewolves, the pincers of some giant ants, the massive arms of the abominable snowman, and the petrifying stare of the gorgon. Oh, and rescue his schoolmates, find Iggy and Tinker, discover a way out and defeat Toby Jugg at the same time. Thank goodness Measle is one of the bravest boys around!

About the Author:

Previous books: 'Measle and the Wrathmonk' (shortlisted for the Nottingham Children's Book Award and the Bedfordshire Children's Libraries Award); 'Measle and the Dragodon' and 'Measle and the Mallockee' and 'Measle and the Slitherghoul'.

Review:

`[Of previous Measle books]: 'Ogilvy is a good inventive storyteller who writes with infectious enthusiasm . . .' TES

`. . . badder baddies, more dastardly plots, wicked spells - and what's more, our hero has his first bath in years!' The Sunday Express

`The writing is perfectly pitched for children aged 9 to 12, with one-liners and witty jokes that will tickle the ribs of adults too.' The Daily Express

`Brilliant. It's a work that's comparable to Roald Dahl' Aberdeen Evening Express

`It's scary, very scary, but there's a good chance that Measle can save the day. Ideal for serialised read-aloud for younger children, or for competent readers' Glasgow Herald
